There are heaps of bars and Karaoke Bars in Odessa, especially in its old town. Karaoke is very popular in Ukraine - people love to go there before clubbing having dinner, drinks and sing. Around the Arcadia area there are a few bars as well, even though it’s mostly about the clubs here. In general the bar scene in Odessa is not very big though, people are more into having big and nice dinners and then go clubbing.
Odessa is without a doubt a summer city! All the best clubs are only open during the months of May - September, right at the seaside. They are all open air beach clubs that turn into dance clubs at night time. Dancing and partying under clear sky is what gives you the little extra holiday feeling. The clubs are spacious and you usually get a VIP booth and bottle service rather than just standing around at the bar all night.
